“Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires.”
A little later than now, in the ruins of a theatre, three witches make a prophecy.
A warrior and his wife enter the darkness. A war begins.
Yaël Farber directs James McArdle and Saoirse Ronan, in an elemental production about a world in transformation, the shadows in all of us, and one couple’s spine-chilling quest for power.
Olivier Award-nominee James McArdle plays the title role of Macbeth, having previously appeared in the National Theatre's Angels in America, as well as on-screen in HBO’s Mare of Easttown, Ammonite, and Mary Queen of Scots.
Four-time Academy Award-nominated Saoirse Ronan makes her UK stage debut as Lady Macbeth. She has received acclaim for her performances in films including Atonement, Lady Bird, Brooklyn, and Little Women.
